“Johnny Archer is the most celebrated pool player in modern American history. He’s been using our cloth already since last year at his poolroom and transitioned over all his tables to Championship Cloth. So we already knew he believed in our product. But Johnny is a leader on and off the pool table, he symbolizes the epitome of a champion. What better fit then with us, Championship”, said Mike Serra,Vice-President of Championship Cloth and Chairman of the Billiard Congress of America.
Championship Cloth is a division of D & R Industries, Inc. which began in 1963 in a small apartment in Chicago, Illinois. Through the years, D & R Industries, Inc. went through many changes and expanded into a variety of recreation-oriented businesses, but really found its niche within the billiard industry. After distributing billiard fabrics for more than 25 years, it was clear to D & R that there was a need for affordable high quality billiard fabrics. Thus, a team consisting of engineers, textile experts and old time billiard people worked together to develop what is now known as the “Championship Line” of billiard fabrics. Championship’s expert team of engineers and experts worked for over five years to develop the finest billiard cushion rubber in the industry. A decade later, Championship’s cushion rubber can already be found on the tables of many of today’s major billiard table manufacturers. More recently Championship acquired major billiard supplier MBS Group, which has substantially expanded Championship further. D & R has now been a proud staple of the billiard industry for 50 years providing the finest billiard fabrics, cushion rubber and component parts. Today Championship now sells more billiard fabric than all of its major competitors combined. Please visit www.champbilliards.com and Like us on Facebook atwww.facebook.com/
